Biography

The Twilights were the leading Australian pop music group of the mid to late 1960s.

Alongside The Easybeats and The Masters Apprentices the band are regarded as one of the most significant Australian groups of the period and renowned for their musical excellence and live prowess. They were one of the most popular bands of their day with teenage audiences but also commanded high respect among fellow musicians. The group is also notable as one of the few major Australian pop acts of the period to retain the same personnel for virtually all of their career.

Frank Barnard - drums [1964-65]
Peter Brideoake – rhythm guitar, vocals
Terry Britten – lead guitar, vocals
John Bywaters - bass
Clem “Paddy” McCartney – lead vocals
Laurie Pryor - drums [1965-69]

1965
The migrant hostels of the major Australian cities were fertile breeding grounds for some of the most important Australian pop-rock rock bands of the Sixties. At Villawood migrant hostel in suburban Sydney, some young and talented music enthusiasts had recently formed into a group called The Easybeats, and that band’s story is among the most compelling in Aussie rock history.

The Twilights formed in the migrant settlement of Elizabeth, north of Adelaide in South Australia. Like many young musicians all over the world, they were seduced by the magic of The Beatles’ film A Hard Day’s Night.
